    October 2020 General Conference will be "virtual only".
    So, once again, that woman is fleeing back into the wilderness.
    D&C 88:66 66 [Behold, that which you hear is as the voice of one crying in the wilderness—in the wilderness, because you cannot see him (have personal, one on one contact with)—my voice, because my voice is Spirit; my Spirit is truth; truth abideth
    and hath no end; and if it be in you it shall abound.] https://kslnewsradio.com/1926547/october-2020-general-conference/

    A continuation of a process to "Gather Yourself Together".
    The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Volume 20 https://books.google.com/books?id=CZtJAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA772&lpg=PA772&dq=john+the+revelator+church+hidden+in+the+wilderness&source=bl&ots=egKteIYR2i&sig=ACfU3U2fPXMb32k2viHvAdJ9ep-LLnRIqw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjYwfXNy-jpAhUWrJ4KHT_ZBzkQ6AEwAHoECAcQAQ#v=

    John the Revelator assured his readers that although Satan makes war with the Saints of God, they can be victorious. We can overcome Satan by relying on the Atonement of Jesus Christ, living so that our names are written in the Lamb’s book of life (
    genealogy), and keeping the covenants we make with God. As we are faithful in these ways, we will also receive protection from the plagues to be poured out upon the earth. . . . These clarifications confirm that Satan will not prevail in his war against
    God’s kingdom on earth. They also teach that the woman represents the “church of God” and that the child she gives birth to is the “kingdom of our God and his Christ” (Joseph Smith Translation, Revelation 12:7 [in the Bible appendix]).

    The Church of Jesus Christ (of Latter-day Saints) was (re) established on 06 Apr 1830. By simple mathematics, by the process of subtraction, [And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a
    thousand two hundred and threescore years.]; This (equals) = 06 Apr 1830, minus (-) 1000 years = 06 April 830, and minus (-) 200 years = 06 Apr 630, and finally, minus (-) 60 years = AD 06 Apr 570, and this then becomes the approximate time when any of
    the Church of Jesus Christ, ceased to exist as an organized entity on the earth. This is much later than the time of the completion of the history of the Book of Mormon; i.e., the destruction of the Nephites (c. A.D. 300-420).
    Also, any vestige of vital priesthood authority legally and lawfully remaining within fragmented strands of Christianity, mangled throughout by Imperial Rome, and civilly conquered under secular dictates, and then co-mingled again together, within its
    governmental rule; initially originating from its Jerusalem beginnings, was thoroughly destroyed. In the Book of Mormon, Jesus Christ said: "But now I go unto the Father, and also to show myself unto the lost tribes of Israel, for they are not lost unto
    the Father, for he knoweth whither he hath taken them." Logically, therefore, the only remaining area on the planet earth, wherein The Church of Jesus Christ would have still existed, up to AD 06 Apr 570, would have been among these Lost Tribes. The
    Church of Jesus Christ has always been a record keeping people. Therefore, we are absolutely assured, by the words of Jesus Christ, that He also established The Church of Jesus Christ among "the lost tribes of Israel", during His visit there, as
    manifested in the record-keeping statement: [And it shall come to pass that the Jews shall have the words of the Nephites, and the Nephites shall have the words of the Jews; and the Nephites and the Jews shall have the words of the lost tribes of Israel;
    and the lost tribes of Israel shall have the words of the Nephites and the Jews.] [According to John Whitmer’s account of a conference of the Church in June 1831, “the Spirit of the Lord fell upon Joseph in an unusual manner, and he prophesied that
    John the Revelator was then among the Ten Tribes of Israel who had been led away by Shalmaneser, king of Assyria, to prepare them for their return from their long dispersion, to again possess the land of their fathers” (in History of the Church, 1:176).

    HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION: Roman Empire 125 - Vistula Veneti
    The Roman empire under Hadrian (117–138 AD), showing the location of the Veneti (Venedi) east of the upper Vistula region (south-eastern Poland and western Ukraine). From a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint, the most important
    point in relation to this group of people that "populated the land with scattered settlements", is found in the fact that their God, named Perun, [acted as the patron saint of ruling army units]. The Mokoš — Veles — Perun triangle is a staple of
    Early Slavic mythology. Perun as the god of thunder (Perun derives from Proto–Slavic per–, “to strike”; so Perun is “the one that strikes”) . . . that “Perun” is not actually a name of a deity, but of one of his functions, namely
    throwing the thunder (lightningbolt). This comes from evaluation of [Some intriguing petroglyphs (that) were discovered in the so-called Cave of Iapodes northeast of Ilirska Bistrica, Slovenia]. Now it must be clearly remembered, that when Elijah the
    Prophet flees to Horeb, [he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God. And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and
    he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?] Slavic tradition matches Biblical history, in going to a cave. [Perun was also related to an archaic form of astronomy – the Pole star was called Perun's eye and countless Slavic and Hungarian
    astronomers continued this tradition – most known ones are Nicolaus Copernicus, and Franz Xaver von Zach.]
    Compare Israel Tribal Symbols with Perun Symbols https://www.google.com/search?q=israel+tribal+symbols&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwjIh4Pjte3pAhUIiZ4KHcGkCWsQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=israel+tribal+symbols&gs_lcp=
    [Gromoviti znaci or thunder marks are considered by some scholars as "ancient symbols of Perun", which are often engraved upon roof beams or over entries of village houses, to protect them from lightning bolts.] This is similar to an Israelite putting
    blood on the doorposts and lintel. Finally, the land populated with scattered settlements, comports to the initial combat formations, combined together, to protect the various fighting independent Tribes of Israel, beginning with the encampment at Sinai,
    as noted in The Military History of Ancient Israel. Thus, the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, were [10 of the original 12 Hebrew tribes, which, under the leadership of Joshua, took possession of Canaan, the Promised Land, after the death of Moses. They were
    named Asher, Dan, Ephraim, Gad, Issachar, Manasseh, Naphtali, Reuben, Simeon, and Zebulun]. Their original military formations and residential living separateness, reappear in Slavic history, especially in the symbols for lightning, that are coded
    graphic military formations, used to gather together military units in times of crisis and grave emergency. [And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the
    mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a
    still small voice. And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?]

    HISTORICAL NOTATION: 6th century - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6th_century
    The extreme weather events of 535–536 were the most severe and protracted short-term episodes of cooling in the Northern Hemisphere in the last 2,000 years. . . . Its effects were widespread, causing unseasonable weather, crop failures, and famines
    worldwide. This coincides with events leading up to the estimated AD 570 time period, for the eventual physical cessation of the legal and lawful, Church of Jesus Christ, anywhere upon this temporal earth.
    The First Plague Pandemic was the first Old World pandemic of plague, the contagious disease caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis. Also called the Early Medieval Pandemic, it began with the Plague of Justinian in 541 and continued until 750 or 767; at
    least fifteen or eighteen major waves of plague following the Justinianic plague have been identified from historical records. The pandemic affected the Mediterranean Basin most severely and most frequently, but also infected the Near East and Northern
    Ctesiphon, capital of the Sassanid Empire, becomes the largest city in the world. [After the conquest of Antioch in 541, Khosrau I built a new city near Ctesiphon for the inhabitants he captured. He called this new city Weh Antiok Khusrau, or literally, "
    better than Antioch Khosrau built this." Local inhabitants of the area called the new city Rumagan, meaning "town of the Romans" and Arabs called the city al-Rumiyya. Along with Weh Antiok, Khosrau built a number of fortified cities. Khosrau I deported
    292,000 citizens, slaves, and conquered people to this new city in 542. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/570
    Jordanes, in his work Getica (written in 551 AD), describes the Veneti as a "populous nation" whose dwellings begin at the sources of the Vistula and occupy "a great expanse of land". He also describes the Veneti as the ancestors of Antes and Slaveni,
    two early Slavic tribes, who appeared on the Byzantine frontier in the early 6th century. Procopius wrote in 545 that "the Sclaveni and the Antae actually had a single name in the remote past; for they were both called Sporoi in olden times". The name
    Sporoi derives from Greek σπείρω ("I scatter grain"), [because "they populated the land with scattered settlements"]. The Sporoi definition is consistent with historical, biblical origins in the scattering of the Ten Tribes of Israel. He described
    them as barbarians, who lived under democracy, believe in one god (as in Jehovah), "the maker of lightning" (Perun: As the liberator of atmospheric water; related to a series of rain gods and goddesses; the lord over everything and the god to whom cattle
    and other victims were sacrificed), to whom they made sacrifice. [As per Elijah and the false Priests of Baal] They lived in scattered housing, and constantly changed settlement. In war, they were mainly foot soldiers with small shields and battle axes,
    lightly clothed, some entering battle naked with only genitals covered. Their language is "barbarous" (that is, not Greek), and the two tribes are alike in appearance, being tall and robust, "while their bodies and hair are neither very fair or blond,
    nor indeed do they incline entirely to the dark type, but they are all slightly ruddy in color. And they live a hard life, giving no heed to bodily comforts..." Jordanes described the Sclaveni having swamps and forests for their cities. Another 6th-
    century source refers to them living among nearly impenetrable forests, rivers, lakes, and marshes. As noted previously, Slavs, or historically identified remnants of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, are the largest ethno-linguistic group in Europe, [he
    will . . . gather his wheat into the garner,] [Therefore, I must gather together my people, according to the parable of the wheat (a grain, ordained for the use of man to be the staff of life), and the tares, that the wheat may be secured in the garners
    to possess eternal life, and be crowned with celestial glory, when I shall come in the kingdom of my Father to reward every man according as his work shall be].

    The Battle of Armageddon: A Prophetic View - And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. The
    angel told John that Jerusalem would be trodden “under foot forty and two months” (Revelation 11:2). Forty-two months is the equivalent of three and a half years. Likewise, the two witnesses mentioned in verse 3 would prophesy and testify of Jesus
    Christ for 1,260 days, or approximately three and a half years. This is mathematically equivalent to [a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.] Or, in other words, a year (time); times 3 (and times), and 6 months, or half a year (
    half a time). https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/old-testament-student-manual-kings-malachi/enrichment-i?lang=eng

    RESEARCH NOTE: Having our names, and the names of all of our real ancestry, and connecting families, correctly, accurately documented and acceptably written in the Lamb’s Book of Life (genealogy), today, is exactly equivalent to Ancient Israel in
    Egypt, [Putting blood on the doorposts and lintel (as it) gave these places the status of an altar, because of the great risk the Israelites took in sacrificing the Pascal lamb. Recall that the Egyptians worshipped the lamb as a deity, and in displaying
    the lamb’s blood for all to see, the Israelites were attesting that they had abandoned their former beliefs, practiced in Egypt, and were prepared to risk their lives to do so. <A ram is defined as "an uncastrated male sheep" and [the ram was the
    sacred animal of two Egyptian gods, Amun and Khnum.] And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land. And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the
    LORD our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us? > In doing this, the blood on the doorposts and lintel became like the blood that is sprinkled on the altar, because the altar is for
    expiation, and the blood on the doorposts and lintel served as expiation for the Israelites’ sin of following Egyptian ways.] Home Page > Jewish Heritage > Weekly Torah Portion (Parashat Hashavua) > Exodus > Bo > Doorposts and their Symbolism; from Bar

    Doorsteps and their Symbolism
    By: Yair Barkai
    [The commandment to spread the blood (of the Pascal lamb) on the doorposts and lintel has raised various questions and been extensively discussed. Therefore here I shall focus on the symbolic significance of the place the Israelites were commanded to
    apply the blood of the sacrifice. It is written, “They shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they are to eat it.”]

    Doing true Family Genealogy and History Research, is now, more than ever before, in the history of the world, critically incumbent for all patriarchal family salvation, both in this temporal time period and for all eternity. [Behold, the great day of the
    Lord is at hand; and who can abide the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appeareth? For he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap; and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and
    purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness. Let us, therefore, as a church and a people, and as Latter-day Saints, offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness; and let us present in his holy temple,
    when it is finished, a book containing the records of our dead, which shall be worthy of all acceptation.] In other words, very simple words, there is only one way to offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness; and that is by presenting in his holy
    temples, books containing the records of our dead, which shall be worthy of all acceptation. Anything less than books worthy of all acceptation, will be rejected, just as [Cain’s offering was rejected by the Lord . . . (since) it was not done in faith
    nor in the prescribed and revealed manner (compare Moses 5:5–8 with Gen. 4:3–5).]
